on the ground, military and state department people are asking for more help. they are asking for security, they are pleading for security and they got nothing. it was inexcusable and it should preclude her from holding higher office. [applause] on may 5 of the year of the attack, they requested a d.c.3 plane. this is not one of the newest plane, i think we can afford this kind of plane when it is requested. it ply flies around the country and to flee when requested. denied. three days later $300,000 was approved for an electrical station in vee enfla. the ambassador is selling electric cars to his friends but the plugs were not working. so we don't have enough money to let them have a plane. we're saving money, no plane for you, we spend $100,000 showing off our climate change philosophy for the western europeans. we go through the summer, we find out that the state department also spent $100,000 on three comedians that we sent to india on a not war promotional tour. we don't have money for security but we have money for comedians to go to india. we also found out that the state departmen

that is stated we have to file an 801. that is a local law. it's been requested of me to feel comfortable for approving this. i feel this is a great stubbornness about this unless there is some kind of threat, i don't understand why you wouldn't want to do that. >> supervisor, the d. a.'s office the f pcc stated it was an inappropriate form because we made a specific request for the offices and we designated where it would be located. it's an inappropriate form and i respect their opinion and the analysis of this situation. the attorney we used in this matter 801 and 803 are state regulations. that agency has said it's not an appropriate form. 803 is the appropriate form. we filed that and that contains all the information. we have addressed the concerns that you are raising about filing the appropriate forms. the state and with the city and we've done that. >> thank you for the explanation. i expected it. mr. gibner, could you state one last question i have that whether our local laws about requiring filing around 801 whether that requirement should be followed? >> just to be clear, the

at it globally it is a very, very important moment. we tend to focus in the united states on the 60's, western europeans tend to focus on the 60's but if you look at it from the global perspective i don't think it looks quite that way. my book was kind of an exploration to find out how this was so. >> host: let's take these off quickly for you. we have a afghanistan as i mentioned that i always thought to me of the brady bunch. the family would come down the open staircase and it had been recently occupied before "newsweek" took over by al qaeda leaders or at least that's what we were told pity i guess it seemed more glamorous. but it is a great point that you made it so, afghanistan and the communist takeover that happened in 1979. china, the rise of the turn to the end of mao and his cultural revolution. poland as we mentioned that election of pope john paul ii and the return to his homeland and the solidarity movement. great britain, but the election of margaret thatcher and i think it's been lost as part of the historical narrative of britain after margaret thatcher. so i am looking forwar

involvement in those revisions was very minor. plying the state department under hillary clinton was the primary editing force. the state says they didn't want to highlight al qaeda involvement because it might impede the investigation. a fairly incredible assertion. what jay carney attempted to do today was convince the world that there was initial confusion about who attacked the american ambassador and killed him and that the white house was acting responsibly in avoiding placing direct blame. the fact remains that ambassador rice did place blame for the attack on the anti-islamic video released in the u.s.a. that was her primary focus. so summing up, no admission of wrongdoing by the obama administration. charges that the benghazi controversy is politically motivated and no release of emails that might clarify the situation the white house saying some congress people have seen them and that's all that's necessary. and that's the memo. now, for the top story tonight. let's bring in abc news correspondent jonathan karl who is investigating the story. first of all, about jay car
